Why you should get a massage on holiday

Most of us are so caught up with work outside and chores at home that we have forgotten to relax. Even when we plan a holiday, we end up planning it crammed with so many things to do and see that does not leave us anytime to relax. We might, in fact, end up more tired than before the holidays.

Some people find that holidays are more stressful for them than the regular days. There is so much more to do with the family and so many activities to go to that their body and mind start to rebel. Shopping in new places and sightseeing take out the wind from their sails.

In such a scenario the best trick is to take some time out for a massage and feel better and relaxed. To ensure that the holidays remain stress-free, plan it in a relaxed fashion. Do not cram it into many activities especially, if you have children. Keep some me time factored in when you can go for some relaxing massage or a beauty treatment.

People feel more tired with the extra walking during the holidays and even the leisure activities are strenuous. New places and new people should be exciting and make us feel wonderful, yet at times we are so tired that a spa massage therapy is a good option to bring the energy back. Whether it is summer or winter, the time is always right for a massage. Of course, many hotels now provide a spa facility within the premises. You can, however, choose any place of your choice and get a soothing treatment done.

I remember that during a holiday in Asia, an incredibly rejuvenating facial in Singapore, helped me recover from the travel stress and my face was glowing for days thereafter. A holiday often coincides with sickness due to changed food and water and stress. A calming massage helps to reduce the blood pressure, soothe aching muscles and improves the immunity. No wonder people now plan their holidays around a spa, massage and with a complete wellness package in mind.…

ROAD TRIP ON A BUDGET: DO’S AND DON’T’S

Who doesn’t love a fun filled vacation? Bing on a tight budget does not mean you cannot go on a holiday nor have fun. You can save money on expensive airfares and plan a cost effective road trip instead. Despite being on a small budget, I finally hired a campervan and went on a trip to Scottish Highlands and it was simply perfect. The key to this is to plan correctly and in advance. Here are a few do’s and don’ts that will help you have a memorable trip without having to splurge.

Don’t decide your route impromptu

Plan your route before you set out. Be prepared for a few wrong turns and longer routes but deciding which way to go is not good. You will end up wasting a lot of time and fuel travelling longer distances.

Always set a budget

Plan in advance how many days and where all you plan on stopping and how much expense to expect. If your budget is really short, you can set priorities and plan your budget accordingly. Fuel, car general checkups, a budget for unforeseen expenses must not be forgotten. You can carry non-perishable food items before you set out to save money eating out.

Don’t over pack: When you do not have a weight limit and an empty car to fill up, it can be tempting to carry extra. While you can throw in some extras, but loading up the entire car will make the place feel even more cramped up. Leave enough room in the car to stretch your legs or change your seating position.

Find entertainment that fits your budget: Do not go on that safari ride if it means shaking the budget for the rest of the trip. Look online and plan for whatever entertainment is available within your budget. There are numerous sites online that offer some great choices.
